Hello I have a vocab named 'categories'. I also have a vocab called 'tags'. I have added a term reference field (categories) to tags vocab so as i can relate tags to categories. Previously on D6 i would have the same vocab for both but with D7's new fieldable taxonomy i have to give this a go.

I am trying to create a view (block or views pane) that will display on my Categories term page. The view will contain the tags that are 'related' (have the category field added to them) on display. I am making this sound harder than it is is.

Term (tag vocab) 'Web Design' with term Reference (category vocab) 'Tech'. when i visit 'Tech' i see a view in the sidebar displaying 'web design'.

Can anyone give me any pointers in creating this View? I think I am using the wrong relationship possibly. I have three options. The Optional field is my category field:

Taxonomy term: Optional (field_optional) This is an alias of Field: Optional (field_optional).

Taxonomy term: Content using Optional Relate each Content with a Optional set to the term.

Taxonomy term: Taxonomy term using Optional Relate each Taxonomy term with a Optional set to the term.

I think if I at least knew the right one to use it might help me accomplish my task. thanks

  • so really i need a term view with a contextual filter based on my category (optional) vocab. Then i will need a relation to my TAGS vocab. Then i will display term and use the TAG relationshipo. i think – Reg Gordon Apr 20 '13 at 11:29
